Blueberry Lemon Mousse Cake

It was one of those weekends where I didn't have any plans and I was in the mood to make a cake. So I chose this recipe because (a) it sounded delicious (b) I like multilayered cakes and (c) seriously had nothing to do and I could stretch this cake layering process over the whole weekend. ;)

I couldn't decide which picture I liked best so here are a few other shots.

Sponge cake:
3 eggs
pinch cream of tartar
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
90 g flour
Lemon Mousse:
200g white chocolate
125 g mini marshmallows

juice and zest of 2 lemons
Blueberry Mousse:
200 g blueberries
25 g sugar
180 g mini marshmallows
200 ml heavy cream

Sponge Cake Layer:
1. Set oven to 395 F. Line a spring form with a little bit of cooking spray and wax paper.

2. Separate the eggs. Save both the yolks and whites.
3. In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar.
4. Add half of the sugar and whisk until shinny.

5. In a small bowl, combine egg yolks and the remaining sugar.

6. Gently fold together egg whites and yolk mixture.

7. Pour into pan and bake for about 15 minutes until slightly brown on top.
8. Let cool completely.

11. Add in chocolate and lemon juice.

12. In a medium bowl, whisk heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add lemon zest.

13. Fold cream mixture into chocolate mixture.
14. Pour over sponge cake.

15. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

16. In a food processor, combine blueberries and sugar until smooth.

17. Whisk heavy cream until soft peaks form.

18. Add in blueberry mixture.

19. In a large sauce pan, melt marshmallows over low heat.
20. Once marshmallows are melted, fold in blueberry mixture.

21. Once the mixture reaches room temperature, pour over lemon mousse.
